2023 was another exciting year at Madison Public Library. As you scroll, you'll see a data snapshot of the library services delivered at our 9 locations and on the Dream Bus. These services include free access to our spaces, collections, programs, online databases and so much more! You'll see the impact of year-round author programs offered through the Wisconsin Book Festival, or the Bubbler at Madison Public Library's incredible focus on connecting, empowering and highlighting the work of local artists in the community. Then there are the juicy details - the most checked-out eBook and Audiobooks, the most popular things streamed on Kanopy, and exactly how many seeds got given way from the Seed Library this year! Read more below for a better look at our Year in Review, or go back and see how this year measures up against 2022, 2021 or 2020.
Thank you to everyone who borrowed a book, used an online database, attended a program, or supported the library in 2023! We can't wait for another year of library service in 2024.
